By whillie30 ·
Here are my hardware:
1 file server with two NIC
5 workstation connected to file server for Application A
5 workstation connected to file server for Application B
16 port gigabit switch

Here is my situation:
* I want to setup a file server for two application.
* I want to use one NIC for each application.

Question:
How do I configure each adapters to be dedicated to each application?

Additional:
If there is an answer for Windows 2003 server or Cent OS for Linux.

Can Configure via NIC / Switch

Giving NIC's Specific Address and configure your application to connect to that address


or you can configure your switch say " 8 port will connect to vlan01 and the other 8 port connect to vlan02 " which 8 port will connect 1 nic from file server + 5 workstation with application A , and the other 8 port will connect 1 nic from file server + 5 workstation with application B.

BIND

by oldbaritone In reply to Configuring two NIC in on ...

the default on most application programs setting up a listening socket is to bind the listening port to all addresses. In this case, you want to specify which application binds to which address (NIC) and prevent it from listening on the other NIC.

How to accomplish that with your particular applications should be in the user manual, or call support.
